1885 — 1910 




',^; HE HISTORY OF ST. CHARLES PARISH is similar 

in its general ontlines to most of the city parishes. A I* 

lumber of families reclaimed the prairie, and. desiring" f 

the comforts of religion and the benefits of a Catholic |* 

school petitioned for a pastor of their own. At first the number of ♦ 

families was small — about two hundred — and manv sacrifices % 

were made, but faith and generosity conquered. * 

The present parish of St. Charles Borromeo was formed by %■ 

joining portions of St. Pius' and St. Jarlath's parishes. All south |* 

of Twelfth Street formerly belonged to St. Pius", and all north to X* 

t 

St. Jarlath's. It is bounded on the north by Polk Street, from *:* 

Rockwell Street to Lincoln Street, and from Lincoln Street to % 

t 

Ashland Avenue by Taylor Street ; on the east by Ashland Avenue *:* 

from Tavlor Street to Fourteenth Street ; on the south from Ash- % 

t 

land Avenue to Western Avenue by Fourteenth Street, and from *{* 

AA^stern Avenue to Rockwell Street bv Sixteenth Street ; on the ♦ 

west by the railroad tracks. *| 

*♦* 

Rev. F. S. Henneberry, the ijastor of St. Pius', worked most ♦ 

*?<? 

earnestly for the establishment of the new parish, and personally % 

requested Archbishop Feehan to listen to the appeal of the peti- |* 

tioners for a pastor. The fall previous to the establishing of the % 

parish Father Henneberry sent teachers from St. Pins', and they *♦* 

conducted what was termed the Branch School, which was situated *$ 

on Hastings Street, No. 335, and in the property owned by Mr. *> 

J. Ryan. % 

In August, 1885, Archbishop Feehan appointed Rev. P. D. *t* 

Gill as pastor of the newly formed parish, and he selected St. ♦:* 

Charles Borromeo as the patron. Father Gill entered upon his *j* 

work trusting entirely to the faith and good-will of the people ♦:♦ 

of his new charge, and he was not disappointed. ^

to assist in the parish work. He remained until Septemljer of 



who labored earnestly and successfully until April, 1894. May 



^ When Father Ciill arri^■e(l, there was no church, no land, no *^ 

<* house, no place for service. For some months he accepted the ♦:♦ 

|[ hospitality of Father Henneberrv, and held services in what was *|

♦:♦ by the Archbishop, who complimented pastor and people on the ^ 

1^ rapid progress. The pastor rented a small dwelling at 78 Cypress ^

f relief, althou2-h it has often l;)een short of funds. Its chief source f 



of income is its annual entertainment. The Rev. Pastor also turns 
over to it the contributi<^ns to the church Poor Box. This amounted 
to about $140.00 during the year 1909, and the active members 
contril)uted about an equal amount to the collection at its weekly 
meetings. 

The conference is fortunate in ha\'ing the ser\ices of Drs. 
Moore, H. J. \\'ay, E. J. O'Brien and A. C. Kubicek. 

It receives honorar}- members, who contribute a fixed sum-

78 ST. CHARLES CHURCH, CHICAGO | 

St. Charles' choir has been, during the twenty-five years of % 

its existence, one of the most active and progressive organizations * 

in the parish. Starting under the direction of Miss Marv Doran % 

in 1885 with a small membership, it undertook some very pretentious ^ 

work, and attracted voices of unusual sweetness to its ranks. f 

After two years of most satisfactory service, the choir came |l 

under the leadership of Mr. P. Torney, whose daughter Edna, *f 

then a young pupil of the parochial school, presided at the organ. % 

In a few years Miss Torney resigned to accept the organ at Our f 

Lad}- of Sorrows Church. Mr. Fitzgerald and Mr. ]\Ioore succes- $ 

sively took charge of the choir, which consisted of twentv singers — f 

just enough to occupy the small platform which served for so many *> 

years as the choir-loft in the building which is now the parochial |^ 

school. S 

In 1894 the choir direction was given by Rev. Fr. Gill to % 

!Miss Alav Smith, now Mrs. AVm. F. R^•an. who has continued ♦*♦ 

- •►♦♦ 

to preside as organist and choir director ever since. As soon as % 

the new church was proposed, a large chorus of seventy-five voices ♦> 

was organized to prepare for the dedication, and since that time, % 

although old members have resigned after years of service, and |* 

pleasure, new recruits have gladlv taken their nlaces. so that the ♦ 

work of the choir has been of the highest excellence at all times, ^ 

and an orchestra was needed on all important feasts to support the ^ 

voices. 1^ 

At last a large organ was a necessity, and a Lyon & Healy *> 

two-manual was installed at a Sacred Concert given February 13, $ 

1901. Very Rev. John Cavanagh delivered the address. j\Ir. Ed- *> 

ward B. Sche\e gave an organ recital, and the program presented $ 

by the choir was very elaborate. The opening chorus "Exulta t 

Sion" was written for this occasion, and dedicated to the choir * 

1)v ]\Ir. Eustacio Rosales — who assisted in its first performance. ^
